The CBC Entrepreneurial Fellows (EF) Award program identifies and supports the professional development of junior life sciences researchers who are keen to develop the skills and experiences needed to move translational projects from a university lab toward commercialization and potentially into a Chicago-based biotech start-up. The program exposes Fellows to a breadth of real-world experiences across the CBC institutions and connects trainees to the Chicago biomedical community. Recipients will receive a stipend of $85K with fringe benefits, and travel support.
Applicants must be recent recipients of a PhD, MD, PharmD/PhD, MD/PhD, or MS with extensive research experience and/or a thesis, or will have recently completed an initial postdoc in the biomedical sciences (no more than 4 years from terminal degree conferral).
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis after the portal opens in the Spring.
